To test some new changes and polish them before pushing it live for all players.
Do I need to do anything to migrate from the Adventure Beta Test to the general version of the Minion Rush?
Simply launch the game when you want to play and follow the directions.
Can Original Minion Runners participate in the Adventure Beta Test?
We appreciate all our players and your willingness to participate, it means a lot to us.
We’re running the Adventure Beta Test only with New Minion Runners due to technical limitations. There’s a big risk to the progress of the Original Minion Runners we want to avoid any impact to it.
However, all our Original Minion Runners will start to see the best performing features from the Adventure Beta Test once the test has concluded.
Will we know if we’re participating in the Adventure Beta Test?
Only a very limited amount of New Minion Runners will be randomly picked to participate in the Adventure Beta Test. If you already played Minion Rush on your device / store account, you will not be chosen for this experiment.
I hit the obstacles too often. Do you have any tips?
Pay attention to the height of the obstacles, if they are twice your size, you can't jump over them. If there is a gap between them and the ground, you can duck underneath them. If there is no hole in the tall obstacles, you can swipe to the right or left to avoid it.
I've crashed into the obstacles, but I don't want to lose my Despicable Multiplier and score. What should I do?
No worries! If you want to continue your run, you can always revive and keep your progress. When you're crashed, you have a few seconds to decide if you're going to restore; choose an option that suits you and continue the run. You can revive by paying tokens, bananas, or by watching a video ad.
What is the Costume Ability?
Every costume has a dedicated Ability with its duration that could be activated any time you want. During the run, you can charge the Ability by committing Despicable Actions, collecting bananas, doing jump-overs, slide-under, near misses, or picking up Power-ups from the track.
How do I activate the Costume Ability?
When Ability is charged, you can activate it whenever you want by double tapping on the screen or by tapping on its icon at the bottom of the screen.
How do Costumes affects the Score Multiplier?
Different Costumes have different Ability duration and Score Multiplier. Some Costumes give higher values than others. Also, don't forget that getting a Costume will increase your Score Multiplier forever, so if you want to become the greatest runner, make sure to collect all the Costumes!
Why do I need different Abilities?
Picking the right Costume for the run is essential. Some of them can help you survive longer, collect more bananas, or complete Festival Missions faster.
How does a Festival work?
A Festival is a limited-time event that gives you rewards for completing Missions.
To progress in the Festival you can complete Missions that reward you with Festival Points; collecting a specific amount of Festival Points unlocks a Reward Tier, then you can claim the reward anytime you want.
What is the Premium Pass?
You can purchase the Premium Pass for the active Festival and immediately unlock access to amazing rewards on Premium Tier and access to Premium Missions that give more Festival Points compared to regular Missions.
There are no Missions in the Festival, what should I do?
Missions are distributed into stages that unlock every week. If you have completed all available Missions for the week, just come back to the game when a new stage unlocks, and continue your progress in the Festival.
Where I can find my Costumes?
In the Main Menu, you can tap on the Minion and take a look at the list of your owned Costumes. Also, you can open the Costumes tab in the Shop and tap on the Owned button to activate the filter.
How can I change the Costume?
Open the list of your owned Costumes and press the "Equip" button on your preferred Costume to pick it for your next run.

Every new update has a new set of Costumes which you can find in the Costumes tab in the Shop. Also, you can win a couple of them at the Festival.

How can I get more Tokens?
Tokens can be purchased from the Bundles section in the Shop. You can get Tokens for free every day by watching a video ad or as a reward from a Festival and Leaderboard.
How can I get more Bananas?
Collect the bananas during the run or get them as a reward in a Festival or Leaderboard. While running, use Abilities such as Vacuum, Splitter, or Fluffy to collect tons of them!
What's the Weekly Leaderboard?
Weekly Leaderboard is the limited-time event that resets every week. Whenever a runner reaches their highest score, it is posted to the Leaderboard. It is divided into the Tops (Common, Bronze, Silver, Gold) and Top-3. When the event ends the runners that finished in Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Top-3 will be granted with rewards.
How do I participate in the Weekly Leaderboard?
To qualify for the Weekly Leaderboard start a run and get as many points as you can. The better your score is compared to others, the higher your chances of receiving a better reward! You can also open the Weekly tab in the Rank screen to check your current position, score, and rewards.
Why do I see Best 3 Minions in the Weekly Leaderboard?
Best Minions represent players that performed better than all other runners and reached the highest score this week.
What's the Global Leaderboard?
This Leaderboard never resets, here you can find your best score of all time and see your position among all other runners.
What's the Friends Leaderboard?
In this one, you can see your position among your friends. Connect to Facebook and see if you can become the best runner among your buddies!
How does the Score Multiplier work?
This is the key to getting a better score but it depends on the amount of Costumes you have. Every new Costume increases your Multiplier. For a limited time you can increase it by getting a Multiplier as a reward from the Festival or increase it during the run by comitting Despicable Actions.
Why is my Score Multiplier less than before?
When the Festival is over, your temporary Multiplier increase will be discarded. But don't be disappointed because when the new Festival starts you will get an opportunity to increase it again!
Why does my Score Multiplier increase during the run?
The Score Multiplier increases during a run according to the amount of mischief you cause around you by making fellow Minions fly. It multiplies your score, so be despicable! Your increase value resets every time you start a run so keep running as long as you can to get the highest multiplier possible!
How can I change the volume?
From the main screen, open the Options menu and you arrive directly in the Settings. Touch the minus or plus icons to change the volume. But think twice before you turn the Despicable Music off, because it's good!
How do I use Perks?
The game suggests you choose Perks at the start of the run. You can pick some or even all of them at once to improve your progress!
How can I change the language?
In the Main Menu, touch the Options icon. You will arrive directly in the Settings. Tap on the language you want to select.
Do I need internet connection to play?
No, but the connection is needed to activate some features, such as Festival, Weekly Leaderboard, and to purchase items from the Shop. To post a score to the Leaderboard, you also should be connected to the Internet.
How can I turn the notifications on and off?
Open the Options menu from the Main Menu and tap the icon called Connectivity. There you could see the switch that turns on and off the notifications. You can also go to your device's Settings to access further options for your notifications.

No worries! You can always Revive to keep a run going and rescue your progress.

Why does the game requires me to upgrade Fevers from scratch in the new Special Mission?
Upgraded Fevers cannot be transferred to future Special Missions, so you will need to upgrade a fresh Fever for each one.
What is the Daily Challenge Room?

The Daily Challenge Room is room where you can try your hand at completing Daily Challenges.


Each Daily Challenge is available for 24 hours only. After that, it will be replaced by a new Daily Challenge with fresh rewards, such as valuable Prize Pods, Costume Cards, and Tokens.


To complete a Daily Challenge you'll need to complete 3 Missions in a row. While attempting a Daily Challenge you cannot use Perks, and are only allowed to lose once. However, Revives are allowed without limit.


You can find the Daily Challenge Room by scrolling through Gru's Lair. Daily Challenges are displayed on the side scroll bar as a key card icon.
